How to add Power Menu Screenshot button on Android 11

The latest installment of Android OS brought us a lot of additional features, but it has taken away some as well. I’m talking about the revamped Power Menu. Previously the Power Menu came with the button to restart, power off, dial the emergency number, and take a screenshot. Now, if you’re not running a modified version of Android, you’ll not find ScreenShot button. This isn’t much of an issue as you can find the option to take screenshots from the Quick Tiles. However, if you want this button from the previous Power Menu, you can do that without much hassle. Here’s how to add Power Menu Screenshot button on Android 11.
